Movie posters are very important in selling a movie to the public. People are going to look at them for maybe 5 or 10 seconds while they wait for a bus or take a leak in a bar bathroom, and in those 5 or 10 seconds they’ll pretty much decide whether they are interested in seeing the particular movie in question. So that means the people who design the posters have to somehow condense the essence of the movie into one single image, which is a daunting task.
Of course, when all else fails, they can just put a beautiful woman doing something sexy on the poster, throw in a few key phrases, and leave it at that. Because we all know that sex sells.
